Genelec’s RAW series welcomes 8331 and 8341 coaxial models
Genelec – the global leader in professional monitoring solutions – has expanded its range of RAW aluminium models to include the 8331 and 8341 three-way coaxial studio monitors from The Ones series, with a proportion of each sale of these new models being donated to the Audio Engineering Society (AES) throughout the whole of 2022. Originally unveiled in 2020, the distinctive RAW finish is available on a selection of the most popular models in Genelec’s Studio, AV and Home Audio ranges, and has been warmly received by customers the world over for its combination of sustainability and ‘industrial’ design aesthetic. All RAW models feature the timeless Minimum Diffraction Enclosure (MDE) design, developed by Genelec in close collaboration with leading industrial designer Harri Koskinen. Launched in 2017, the super-compact 8331 and 8341 three-way point source models offer extraordinary imaging, accurately controlled directivity in both planes, ultra-nearfield excellence, extended frequency response and fatigue-free listening. The decision to donate a percentage of RAW 8331 and 8341 sales to the AES during 2022 stems from Genelec’s longstanding role as a Sustaining Member of the Society, and the valuable work that the AES brings to individuals for career advancement, and to the audio industry as a whole.
